The New York Surf Film Festival strives every year to curate an exhibition of the highest quality surf films from around the world. We create an annual pilgrimage that gives the surfing community and general public a spotlight in the city to celebrate the filmmaking craft, honor the heritage, and learn about the new movements within and surrounding the surf lifestyle. We connect filmmakers, athletes, friends and family together to enjoy the beauty and stories that are captured on camera.
The New York Surf Film Festival is an event consisting of three days of screenings of independent short and feature films, cult classics, and world premieres from established surf filmmakers. In between screenings, we will be hosting a surf history lecture series, Q&A Sessions with filmmakers and notable surfers, Panel Discussions, and Meet & Greets. We will also be curating a Surf Art Gallery to be open to the public for the duration of the weekend. Please contact us if you are interested in showcasing your work.
